Ubuntu :: USB Dongle For CAT5 KVM Not Recognized?

Sep 9, 2010

I have a two node, source/destination laboratory that I've built for testing at my place of employment. I have 4 servers on each side for different protocol testing: two Windows and two Linux, all daisy-chained through a CAT5 KVM switch. I obviously have network routers/switches in place as well, but that's irrelevant for this issue:I am connecting the servers to the CAT5 KVM with CAT5 to DB-9 & USB Dongles. The DB-9 is the VGA and the USB is for mouse/keyboard support through the KVM. What I've found is that all of the Windows servers recognize the USB connection for keyboard/mouse (this connection also must be in place for the KVM to discover the server), and 1 Linux Server recognizes the USB connection. The other 3 Linux servers do not recognize the USB keyboard/mouse support portion of the dongle, and subsequently the KVM cannot discover them.

The server hardware should be identical on all servers, and I've set the BIOS/CMOS in all servers to mirror each other. Additionally, if I plug the USB portion of the dongle into one of the Windows servers and the VGA into the problematic Linux server, the KVM recognizes it (I can see it, but I obviously can't type or use the mouse). So I am confident beyond a reasonable doubt that this is an issue with USB Keyboard/Mouse support somewhere in my install of Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope on 3/4 of these.It must be possible, however, because 1 of them works. I've checked portions of the working Linux Server to compare them against each other, and I can't find anything that really stands out or explains why it works and the rest don't. Hell, the working one doesn't even have any drivers installed on it.The easy fix is to purchase a PS/2 Dongle. I've already verified it can support it via PS/2, but I don't want to just band-aid the issue unless there is no other solution.

Ubuntu Networking :: Vodafone Dongle Not Recognized?

Dec 11, 2010

We recently got a new mini PC which came pre-installed with Ubuntu 10.10, so far, so good. Today, we invested in a Vodafone broadband dongle (model number: K3570-Z/K3571-Z). I've installed the dongle on our old XP machine, with no problems, however, Ubuntu won't even recognise that it's plugged in. What am I doing wrong? We've had the new machine for 3 days, so I'm really new to all of it and haven't learnt how to use the command prompt yet, so I'm hoping someone has some advice for a complete beginner. I can't understand why it's not recognising that somethings plugged in, because from what I've found, you need usb_modeswitch in over for the dongle to be recognised as a modem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Linksys EC2T Pcmcia With Rj45 Dongle Not Recognized?

Jul 22, 2010

I have a friend with an old, still-working laptop that wants to switch to linux. (Dell Inspiron 7000 PII) I loaded Lubuntu because it's an old machine and has only 512MB of memory. The laptop has no built-in ethernet or wireless. As the title says, he has an EC2T card with it. I've tried to get lubuntu to recognize the card but it's a no-go. I tried the EC2T card on a Windows laptop at my workplace and Windows recognized the card immediately; I was able to surf the web with it.

It looks like at one time it worked with [URL]... and that individual didn't get an answer. Other troubleshooting I've done:I've ran the 'Hardware Drivers' utility and it found no drivers. I tried lspci and the EC2T card isn't listed. I tried a wireless pcmcia card from my workplace and it worked so the laptop's card slot is functioning; lspci does list the wireless card.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Get ETH0 To Appear In Ifconfig Via CAT5 Cable

Nov 7, 2010

I'm trying to get my Ubunutu and OSX systems to connected via a cat5 cable to transfer some large files around very quickly. Now i know normally this would require a crossover cable as it's a direct connection but the macbook/OSX can handle changing the wires round to make it work like a crossover cable as I've done it before. However the macbook creates a self-assigned IP or as I've tried I've set it to :

Then I've setup the Ubuntu system both through the System>Admin>Network panel as:
and my /etc/network/interfaces file is the same;
#lines added to get static crossover cable working
auto lo
iface eth0 inet static

Yet when I run ifconfig in the terminal eth0 isn't present
htpc:~$ ifconfig

Request timeout for icmp_seq 1
Request timeout for icmp_seq 2
Request timeout for icmp_seq 3

Yet the Ubunutu machine is also connected to Wifi and when I ping it's own address I get the expected response. To me it just seems like eth0 isn't being recognised somwhere or it's not turned on yet I can't seem to find any toggles or settings for it anywhere. Further more if I check >System>Admin>Network Tools the IP for eth0 is What could be going wrong and why no IP set correctly?

Networking :: Crossover Cat5 Vs Switch

Feb 15, 2011

got a watchguard firebox 1000 here, old tech i know, the manuals/pdfs on their site want me to use a crossover cable for the quick setup and I havent got any at the moment, but I got dozens of normal patch cables and switches. Can I use 2 patch cables on a switch to simulate a crossover cable scenario? If so ... would there be anything extra to do to make that method work? --tia

this thread indicates there is no difference other than what they mention in the thread? confirmation on that? [URL]

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing 10.10 Network With Win7 Over Cat5 Cable?

Mar 6, 2011

Im a long time Ubuntu user (since 5.04), but networks were never my speciality, I have a desktop running 10.10, connected to the internet trough a US robotics modem (connection eth1), and i want to share its network with my laptop running win7, over a cat5 cable (connection eth0), but the problem is I dont seem to understand what i am doing wrong, what the missing steps required, or in which end is the problem (either ubuntu or windows side).

From what I could grasp was needed googling about the subject, i already set the eth0 connection to share with other computers (in network manager edit connections auto eth0 ipv4 configuration set to share with other computers). Also using the cli set eth0 for static ip using :

sudo ifconfig eth0 Now the question is what i am missing? or is everything needed already done and i just have to properly configure the win7 side (which i already checked several times)?

Here is my ifconfig output:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet Endereo de HW 00:01:29:a6:55:fe
inet end.: Bcast: Masc:

Slackware :: Setup A Networked HP C6280 All In One Device Attached To Network Via Cat5 Cable?

Jun 13, 2010

I am trying to setup a networked hP C6280 all in one device attached to my network via Cat5 cable. It has the IP and I am experiencing problems with setting up HPLIP... I know I am not the only one to have this problem, but I cant find specific info for slackware and all the posts I've found on the web are outdated, often refering to slack 9 or having been posted prior to 2006....

I use Slackware -Current (prior to 13.1 release), CUPS V1.4.3 and HPLIP V3.10.2. When I try to setup my device in HPLIP (hp-setup), I select "network/ethernet/wireless device", then HPLIP discovers my printer @ (like I expect), and then I click "add printer" and I get:

Printer queue setup failed. Please restart CUPS and try again. And then the setup exits. Of course restarting CUPS will not I reinstalled HPLIP and no luck. I can setup the device in CUPS, but if I proceed this way, I will not be able to select the attached scanner as a resource in XSANE.In other words, if I setup the all-in-one device with CUPS, it is considered only a simple printer..I remember that I had the same problem with Slackware 12.2 about 14 months ago, but cannot remember how I fixed it.

Ubuntu :: Sd Card Not Recognized - How To Make It Recognized

Jun 2, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 11.04. The drive was formatted when I installed so it's 100% Ubuntu. The only major problem I have encountered is that Ubuntu will not recognize my SD cards. I really need to access these cards, all my film footage is on there. I think the internal SD card reader (If such a thing exists) would have been deleted during the installation process. I am a greenthumb to Ubuntu and have never used it before so I am rather stuck...

Debian Hardware :: HDD Not Recognized In BIOS But Recognized Upon Boot

Sep 18, 2014

I have a backup HDD with a different distro for my laptop and i can boot into it via external usb or if swapped into the laptop. This HDD/install in question is debian testing and was working fine, the issue arose suddenly. I was first suspecting a failure of hardware somewhere on the motherboard, but the hdd i was using with an external usb adapter also works when installed into the machine. also, the HDD is recognized once i have booted using the external HDD and distro, but it is not recognized by the bios. so i dunno, my first guess is something became corrupt within the testing install, but i guess its also possible that there is some wrong with the HDD but thats not immediately apparent as all the data is still accessible.

Should also note that the HDD with testing on it is also recognized when connected via the external usb adapter, while booted from alternative distro/HDD.

Also. just tried this, but i can get the testing HDD/disto to boot if connected externally. it was going pretty quick, but there i did catch a line about a corrupt filesystem. any commands to run to see what might be going on?? log files to look at?

Ubuntu :: Wireless Usb Dongle Not Working?

Oct 7, 2010

I've been using linux for a while now and I bought a usb wifi dongle (TL-WN727N) and when I first plugged it in it didn't seem to work. So I did the usual lsmod andand blacklisted a few modules. Now network manager was finally beginning to work, it would connect and then after three seconds it would disconnect and reconnect. I then tried wpa_supplicant but it kept giving me (and still does) "wpa_supplicant association request to driver failed" along with some other stuff. On a whim I decided to install wicd and tada, it worked! Now about a week ago I did the usual update that pops up but when I rebooted wicdldn't connect anymore. If I had encryption on my router enabled it would sit there saying ":Verifying" for a while then "Bad Password". If I left my wifi unencrypted it wouldn't get an ip. It connects to my wired router just fine, but it won't connect to my wifi

It has only recently started going so slow, not sure how to fix it or what is wrong. It's connected at HSUPA and it is only affecting HTTP data transfers..

Ubuntu :: Usb_modeswitch Not Recognizing Replacement O2 Dongle?

Oct 22, 2010

I had a Huawei e1752c O2 Mobile Broadband dongle working fine in Ubuntu 9.04 using usb_modeswitch, with settings taken from After renewing an annual O2 contract, I have a new e1752c and it does not work in Ubuntu 9.04, even after installing the latest usb_modeswitch package and data. The new dongle does work perfectly on an identical laptop that has Ubuntu 10.04 with a freshly installed Network Manager and usb_modeswitch.I am guessing that there is a rule (udev or whatever) hanging over from somewhere that needs deleting, but I don't know where to look, and don't see any useful error messages - the device lists as Vendor 12d1, Product 1446 before and after usb_modeswitch runs, but becomes Product 140c in the Ubuntu 10.04 system.

Ubuntu Networking :: Normally Connect Via 2G Dongle With Win Software?

Nov 10, 2010

At the moment I am in the UK using broadband but in a week I will be flying back to India, where I normally connect with a 2G dongle. This comes with its own software that installs when plugged in for the first time and uses an Airtel sim card. Of course this is in Windows so what's going to happen when I go back and try and connect using Ubuntu? I have done a cursory search and note that I should use the Network Connections service, but this relates to 3G, not 2G. Will that make a difference? Is it a suitable replacement for the normal software my dongle installs? I should add that using a Bluetooth phone with the sim card is not practical, I do need to use the dongle.

Ubuntu Networking :: 3G Dongle Switched But Not Detected?

Nov 11, 2010

a few weeks back I got an Indian Reliance 3g dongle. I installed usb-modeswitch, plugged in and it seemed to work brilliantly in Ubuntu 10.04.The problem was it was dropping the connection every ten minutes. The logs had the error message "Terminating on signal 15".I had to unplug the dongle and then it would connect again.x the problem, I tried installing first Sakis3G and then Betawine, both of which were reported by some users to haved. Sakis said "the device did not report GSM capabilities"d no good.Installing Betawine was apparently a bad idea, as after that the dongle ceased to work with Network Manager and Betawine itself was useless. Uninstalling Betawine and re-installing usb-modeswitch did no good.Now, when I plug in the dongle, the logs say:Quote:

Surprisingly "iwlist ra0 scan" command at the Terminal does show alll the available Wifi connections.

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting USB WiFi Dongle To Work?

Nov 19, 2010

I've bought this Blumax USB WLAN adapter 9009 (ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2501/RT2573 Wireless Adapter). I was specifically happy to read in its specs that it supports Linux [URL].

However, it turned out that the co-packaged CD drive doesn't contain anything Linux-related, and the support page online has gzip package with many files I don't know what to do with [URL]. The online support swallowed my query and hasn't returned any answer.

So, now I am wondering what to do. I don't feel so competent as to be able to compile the drivers on my own, specifying several specific parameters. At least it doesn't compile with default params. how to move forward with this. Apart from returning the device, because I'm too far now from the place where I bought this.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Dongle - Plugged Into My Car PC - Not Recognised

Feb 27, 2011

I have 2 computers, both running Ubuntu 10.10. I purchased a TP-LINK Wireless Adaptor model number: TL-WN321G

On my main computer (Acer Laptop) I plugged the dongle into the usb port and Ubuntu picked it up straight away and connected, so it worked straight from the box.

I bought the dongle for my car PC, running Ubuntu 10.10. I then plugged the dongle into my car PC, but nothing, it was not recognised. Even though Ubuntu came bundled with the correct driver files found in /lib/firmware/zd1211 I manually updated them from the latest driver download, but still nothing.

How can I get my dongle to work ? I'm guessing I have missed something, because the dongle worked straight from the box on my laptop.

General :: Get Vodafone Dongle To Work With Ubuntu?

I am trying to get my daughters Ubuntu Laptop to connect to the internet via a Vodafone USB dongle.

I have managed to get the modem itself to connect to Vodafone using the Sakis3G script (brilliant), however once connected the laptop will not pass data through this connection. i.e. when I select "Vodafone prepaid" as a network connection, the little pop up comes up and says GSM no connected?

When I get a connection information from Sakis, it gives an IP address and even had a tiny bit of throughput, however I do not know how to tell it to use the vodafone thingy.
